Established in 1970 in Brianza, Italy, Glas Italia made the most of their heritage and experience from the family glass factory founded at the beginning of the last century.UBER Interiors are a main UK retailer for Glas Italia. In the designing of mirrors, furniture, accessories, shelves, bookcases, tables and low tables Glas Italia collaborates with renowned designers, experimenting with the technological advances made by the Company and expressing their creative talent.
Glas Italia capitalise on the inexhaustible potential of such a pure, noble and refined material as glass. Some of their designs only come to fruition once they have developed ground breaking manufacturing processes, passing safety tests and exacting quality control. For example; the breathtakingly simple bookcase Glass Shelves No.1 was a 1976 design but could only be recently manufactured due to a break through in bonding techniques.
Glas Italia are renowned for creating high quality, luxury Italian glass furniture, embodying minimalist design with contemporary flair and precision. The fragility of the material – in contrast with the striking geometric shapes and vibrant colours which add striking aesthetic- creates effortlessly beautiful designs.
The various angles, forms and compositions of Glas Italia’s products create a certain allure which makes you forget that the striking furniture is actually made out of refined glass. They offer a way of distorting and adding to an interior, whilst also complimenting and submerging themselves effortlessly into it – almost like a chameleon.
